Flag of Italy  , Emilia-Romagna,
Friday, May 3, 2013

Today we left Chianti Country, and Drove by Florence, Bologna, Modena, and final destination Parma to our Agriturismo Bed and Breakfast.  Notice most of the names are like Spaghetti Bolognese, Modena Balsamic Vinegar, Parma-san Reggiano and Parma ham.  All the Italian specialty foods are named after the cities, or vice-versa?

Just passing by Modena on the Autostrada, we noticed a funnel cloud and as neither of us had ever seen one we managed to stop, along with many others and watch in awe at it forming, rising, and forming again quickly and touching down for a minute or so.  It was seriously spinning, an not too far away.  (I used no zoom on the pictures)  We are still waiting to hear if there was any damage, but the people at the B&B had never heard of or seen any tornado ever in this area!
